Hellbound Announced

Saibot Studios announces Hellbound, drawing our attention by describing this as a 90s-style first-person shooter that's using the Unreal Engine 4 to capture the feel of classics such as DOOM, QUAKE, and Duke Nukem 3D. This trailer (NSFW) teases the game and its BFGs, and if you're drawn in, you can sign up for the closed beta test on the official website. Here's word:

Hellbound is the latest PC title by Saibot Studios, the team behind popular horror series Doorways. Inspired by DOOM, Quake, Duke Nukem 3D, Blood and many other shooters of the past, the game experience is focused on shooting, explosions, blood and speed. You have never played something so GROTESQUE!

Players take control of Hellgore, a big-ass motherf*cker who kills demons in Hell. That’s it. Is there a story behind all this? Well… yes, there’s a story, but it's not that important! The real protagonists are the fast-paced action and the gory violence.

Hellbound will be available very soon in PC, first as a Survival Mode that will equip players with the heaviest fire guns of Hell to pit them against hordes of fearsome demons and other monstrous enemies. Closed beta registration is now open on the official Website.

No game that promised old-schoold Doom/Quake/DN3D type of gameplay ever delivered such type of gameplay so far.
Exactly. And the ones which did, did it not by simply copying the old times, but by evolving classic gameplay. Like Hard Reset/Shadow Warrior from Flying Wildhog.

Pretty sure there is no gameplay to show yet...

No game that promised old-schoold Doom/Quake/DN3D type of gameplay ever delivered such type of gameplay so far. Maybe this one will, but they haven't shown the actual game and this teaser doesn't look interesting in any way. Based on the description I expect another Serious Sam/Painkiller clone.

I find it really fascinating that no one can make a Doom/Quake kind of game today. They always screw something big up, no matter if it's a AAA project or indie.

I prefer my characters to be at least somewhat relatable and this trailer is definitely not in the spirit of the shooters of the past. It looks more like gears of war. Also, show gameplay, no one cares about the story.

In this case, "show, don't tell" definitely applies. Gameplay would have been far more effective than some generic protagonist talking.

Ugh. Here’s hoping the game itself is way, WAY better than that trailer.
